Took some time off yesterday-

It's spring and the time of year I always seem to be busiest. There is always winter cleanup to accomplish both at home and church, equipment that has slept all winter that needs attention to be coaxed back into life and toys that need uncovered, tuned and hauled out. I'm behind in all these aspects due to my broken foot and sprained ankle so I've been doing all that I can in spite of my injuries.

But I took yesterday off from all of it. I've been putting in 10 hour days on the job so when the end of the pay period rolled around, I was a full day ahead in my hours and I took yesterday off from the job, the yardwork and the shop. I had to see my Doc about a blood test, drove to Salt Lake City to the VA hospital to have my CPAP machine looked at and then decided that mid-day on a Monday might be a good time to visit Cabelas. So I went. I had a totally (time) unrestricted browse through the gun library, the used gun racks, the fish tanks and fishing department. I bought just a couple items I needed for Fish Slayer's trailer and some new registration numbers for it's sides. (And bought 1 package of number too many, so I guess I have to go back...)

When I got home I took the spousal unit out to the movies- The Lucky One and then home early after picking up some groceries and some desert to go with our evening coffee. I didn't touch a rake, shovel or wrench yesterday and it felt great. Today I'm back to the job and tonight I'll probably be back in the shop working on the Kawasaki. But I feel much better, relaxed and almost like I had a vacation yesterday so it wasa day well spent.
